DataXstream has experienced significant growth in the past few years. Our award-winning, SAP certified cross-channel order management solution, OMS+, has been widely adopted and deployed by significant customers in a wide array of industries—from specialty retail, utilities and building materials to manufacturing and wholesale distributors. We announced strategic partnerships with NTT Data and Savantis to extend the reach of our solution and last fall, we expanded our product offering with the introduction of OMS+ia—DataXstream’s order management with intelligent automation bundle that offers additional automation and machine learning capabilities to eliminate tedious manual processes associated with searching material data and quote/order creation.
As part of our ongoing strategy, and to help prepare us for the next stage of growth and development, we are pleased to announce the creation of a new Board of Advisors. We are thrilled to welcome three veteran leaders from the product analytics, CG special effects and SAP software industries to serve in an advisory capacity on new market expansion, strategic partnerships and alliances, as well as provide business and technical insight regarding future product offerings.
